    So what if I move to another state?

    Alright so I don't have plans to move to another state. However I am curious to know how this might work.

    So the way one gets a ccp/l here is very simple. you apply at your local PD and they have 14 days to tell you yes or no. That is it. No class, no meetings, or any of that crazy stuff I hear about for other places.

    Now lets say that I move to another state. would having a ccp/l from another state wave me from having to go to some class? if not would being a person who has had plenty of training and range time (marine infantry) wave me from having to take some class? Or do you have to just suck it up and do whatever it is that state requires?

    Depends on the statutes in the new state. They're all different.

    Some recognize your license as a resident of the other state, and have a "grace" period during which you can establish residency and apply for your new CHL. Some states consider a CHL null and void the moment residency has changed. Some states require a "delay" period from the point at which residency is proved until you're allowed to apply for a CHL (during which time your old CHL may or may not be valid). And you might have another state's non-resident CHL in hand, which the new state might recognize. Depends.

    You'll need to check the new state's statutes. Inquire at the issuing authority, if uncertain. The ought to be able to clarify.

    Yeah, typically I would guess that you would have jump through the new state's hoops to get their permit.

    I know in Michigan if you were to come here not only would you have to take the training course for the CPL you would also have to be a citizen for 6 months. However depending on what state you come from we would probably reciprocate it. Not sure how that would all work though because that would almost seem like you would have to renounce your citizenship to the current state and become a citizen of Michigan for the 6 month timer to start. I doubt you could be a citizen of both. Some states I know will give you a CPL to their state even if you are not a citizen of it. I don't know if Michigan is one of those states but I am sure someone knows.

    In Ohio, if I relocate from my address to another (in state or out) I have a limited time to tell the issuing PD. 30-days, I think. I was considering moving to Kentucky, and there I need to wait 6-months after relocation to qualify for a CHL (or whatever they call it there). That kinda bites, because KY has reciprocity with OH for CC, but apparently not if I move there.

    Your State of Residence, after you move, is your baseline for following the law.

    If you move to SD, after a short period to establish residency you can apply for a permit to CCW. Provided you pass the background check, you will get the permit. We're a "shall issue" state where they must issue the permit if you're clean. One of the few perks of living here!

    In FL, your previous permit is good for 90 days after you establish residency (the alloted time for the state to issue a CWFL).

    For 3 more days, my residence will be Ohio. Once Friday hits, I will be moving to Michigan and become a resident there. In MI, if you have a CCW from a previous state that is recognized, Ohio is recognized by MI, the 6 months of residency MAY be waived. Depending on the Sheriff in your county.

    I moved from Nevada to New York in 2008 and it was a pain. I had to leave my guns in Nevada. In New York you have to be a resident for three years before applying for a pistol permit unless you want to get signed/notarized affidavits from four people in your previous state of residence to vouch for you, plus another three in New York that have known you since you moved here. I decided to just wait the three years then apply for my New York permit which I received in about 6 months from the time of application. I then had to have my guns shipped from Nevada to New York from one FFL dealer to another, paying fees to both and shipping costs. After my pistols arrived in New York my local dealer gave me a sheet of paper stating he had the guns and their serial numbers and I had to take that to the county office where permits are issued and have the guns listed on my permit. THEN I was able to go back to my local dealer, pick up the guns and stick them in my waistband to go home. I had to leave my "high capacity" (15 round) magazines in Nevada and buy 10 round magazines in New York. And now with our new gun laws I can legally only load 7 rounds in them. Welcome to New York! I had no guns for almost four years.

    "And now with our new gun laws I can legally only load 7 rounds in them. "

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe even those 10-rounders are illegal now unless "permanently" modified to accept no more than 7 rounds. There is no job, no amount of pay, no family ties that would ever give me cause to move to NY.

    It depends on the state. If you move to Texas you can get your CHL as soon as you get your DL.

    That's why I'm not leaving OH. They already make it where you have to have a permit to carry but yet since we live in the US the permit from one state should be good enough for all the states. But I know that will most likely never happen so I'm just saying.
